Sarkozy, who hands the reins over to Hollande on May 15 and may goback to work as a lawyer, said in an official declaration in Marchhe was worth about 2.7 million euros, up from 2.1 million when hetook power in 2007. Most of that is in life insurance products but Sarkozy alsodeclared a collection of autographs, watches and statuettes worth100,000 euros, and a joint bank account of 57,000 euros he shareswith his wife, the singer and former model Carla Bruni. Hollande’s wealth falls just below the threshold that would makehim liable to pay wealth tax in France. His French Riviera residence was bought in 1986 for just over halfits current declared value and is the place where he spent summerbreaks with former partner Segolene Royal, with whom he had fourchildren in a quarter of a century together. He now lives with Valerie Trierweiler, a journalist who says shewants to remain working mother to pay the way for three sons shehad before meeting Hollande. Led Underground Light
